Share the Basket: Restorative ResourcesThe intelligent order of the Universe is revealed in many ways. Considering the wonders of the natural world can strengthen our trust and faith in the Great Big Thing as surely as any scripture. Come get your head stretched on the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci Sequence. You may never look at trees, your body, or a rectangle the same way again!

Share the Basket: Verity of Sonoma County(Bridging Ceremony for graduating Youth Group members at 11:00.)We begin our series on the Seven Virtues with courage. The Unitarian Universalist Association is currently wracked with turmoil over racial inequalities in hiring and leadership. Some folks are facing this courageously, others less so. Whether at the national level, here at UUCSR, or in our hearts and minds it takes courage to dismantle racist structures and habits, and to move together toward the truly equal and respectful multi-racial community that the Spirit of Love longs for us to create.
Today we also welcome our graduating seniors into the community of adult members with a Bridging Ceremony at the 11:00 service.

THE LIVING ROOM
Our May Hot Topic will be an update on what has been happening at The Living Room, which provides day services for women and children who are homeless. This past year has been a big transition as The Living Room has moved from their old home across the street, at Church of the Incarnation, to their own campus on Cleveland near College.
Katie Phillips, volunteer coordinator and member of the Mother and Children Program staff will tell us about their new location and changes to the program that they have been able to make as a result of the move. Please note we will be meeting on the first Sunday (May 7th), rather than our usual second Sunday.
We will offer a light snack, not lunch.

Neither a 13-year experiment in prohibiting the manufacture and sale of alcohol in the 20s, nor the so-called War on Drugs in the modern age, failed to eliminate the American appetite for altered states of mind. That is because those enforcement tactics address the symptoms, not the causes, of our discontent. Far more than merely not becoming intoxicated (as sensible as that is), temperance is the quality of self-restraint, and it is a highly useful virtue. Just like mom said.

Ah, dear Prudence. Such an old-fashioned term! Is there a place anymore in our ever-changing, ultra-modern world for caution and careful forethought? Is there a place in our progressive UU tradition for conservative instincts? Today we’ll consider the wisdom of putting on the brakes.

We will also welcome new members into our fellowship at the 11:00 service.
Justice - it's a concept we UUs correctly affirm and promote and try hard to practice - well, maybe even a little too hard. Sometimes, in our rush to do the right thing, do we forget to be just to each other, fellow activists, and people with whom we differ? What if we added more forgiveness, compassion, humility, and good humor to our social justice practices?

Faith can play a powerful role in getting well. Psychiatrist Mark Ragins has proposed that there are several identifiable stages in the recovery of one’s mental health, similar in concept to the stages of death and dying identified by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. We will reflect on these concepts and how they might be helpful in your congregation, your faith and your life.
Rev. Barbara F. Meyers is a Unitarian Universalist Community Minister affiliated with the Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Fremont, California. Her ministry is focused on mental health issues and includes educational, healing, social justice and priestly functions. Barbara graduated from Starr King School for the Ministry in 2004.
